|The mission of the Admission Ambassadors Program is to facilitate the decision-making process that all high schoolers and their families have to face. The Ambassadors are honorable students who dedicate themselves to the helping of others. ||A quality necessary to perform well as an Ambassador is an outgoing personality. Prospective students should feel at ease asking essential questions regarding their futures. ||The most difficult aspect will be having to accept the fact that PC is not for everyone! Although it is the perfect school for me, I need to put my biased-ness aside, and then it will be so rewarding to assist the students with their crucial decision. ||Strengths of mine are my problem solving skills and my social skills. I am talkative and love giving reasonable advice! A weakness of mine would be that I often put myself last, and make decisions to please others over myself. ||College tours and shadowing programs were very helpful to me. I would tell students in the process to try and imagine themselves living a daily life at each school they visit, and then go with the place that feels most like home to them! ||I would love to be an Ambassador because I am a friendly, intelligible, and outgoing girl who loves talking to new people. Based on these qualities alone I know that I would make a great Ambassador! |

|The Admission Ambassadors seek to serve the prospective students of Providence College through the sharing of information and a passion for our school. This mission statement seeks to reflect the Admission Ambassadors desire to serve and passion for PC.||I believe that a great Admission Ambassador should be outgoing, friendly, kind, and passionate about PC. These qualities make for an effective Ambassador because prospective students should meet people who love PC and want to share it with others.||I believe the most difficult issue for an Ambassador will be those focusing on what they don't like about PC. I will remedy this issue by highlighting the great things about PC. I anticipate that answering people's will be most rewarding.||Strengths:|

|The Providence College Admission Ambassadors Programs seeks to aid potential students through the college admissions process by providing resources and information that allows students to evaluate whether Providence College is the right school for them. ||A good Ambassador must have strong social and communication skills in order to answer any questions or concerns potential students have. They must also be very knowledgable about life at PC and excited to share their experiences. ||Honesty about some topics (alcohol) would be difficult. I would respond that while these activities happen at PC, there is more to do than just that.

|This organization serves to welcome prospective students, making them feel comfortable within the Providence College community while giving them an accurate impression of this community. This is how I would expect my personal Admission process to be.||A good Ambassador should be friendly, outgoing, and able to make others feel comfortable. The main tasks of Ambassadors include speaking to groups about personal experiences and hosting prospective students, both of which require these qualities.||Connecting with perspective students in a short amount of time may be difficult.

Introducing new students to the PC community which I have come to love myself would be the most rewarding.||I am an extremely enthusiastic, outgoing, and friendly person. I am knowledgable about the PC community as well as Providence, because I am a Rhode Island native. ||The most helpful aspect of my college search was visiting the colleges.

|It would say that the purpose is not to persuade the students into pinking PC, but that the Ambassadors should give tools to seniors looking for college in making a better decision. ||I am a person who is not afraid to say what they think. However, I also listen to the voices around me. I can easily have empathy for people who are looking for colleges, because, not only have I been there, it was a tough choice for me. ||I think that parents might be something that every student has to overcome when looking for colleges.

|The Ambassadors aid the Office of Admissions through personal experiences. They assist potential high school applicants in deciding whether PC will be a good fit for their educational needs. They serve as a relateable outlet to the students. ||Ambassadors must be comfortable with themselves before they can be an outlet to others. They must also have a desire to give back to PC, and a passion for their experiences here so far. Without passion for the school, assisting others will be difficult.||I do not see any aspect that is particularly difficult. There are no demanding hours, and I enjoy discussing PC so the work with the prospective students will come naturally.

I am also an intern with Year Up, a non-profit, as well as in the Town of North Smithfield. ||Admission Ambassadors are a group of prideful PC students who express their pride through offering prospective students tours of the campus. Ambassadors are PC students who represent the mission of PC and what PC wishes to grow into.||A good Ambassador needs to be relatable. Many prospective students wish to receive tours from Ambassadors they can identify with. Ambassadors also need to be well-spoken and confident individuals in order to give helpful info sessions and tours.||Speaking about off campus life and the city would be hard because the area is often why students do not come to PC. I will explain that PC is safe and offers activities for all. I love to hear prospective students stories with the college process.||An aspect of myself that is both a strength and a weakness is that I commit myself to many activities. I am a person who likes to remain busy and to lead a hectic lifestyle. Because of this, I often over stretch myself. However, I am very organized. ||Seeing college campuses in person was most helpful to me. I was able to differentiate between schools, while figuring out what I liked and disliked. I believe that all students should see a school before they attend. I would offer that as my advice. ||Teaching students about college readiness, I am interested in the subject. I wish to experience a new perspective on this process. My skills with high school students would help make me a good Ambassador because I am comfortable with the age group. |

This day solidified my choice to come to PC, and it was because of the interactions and connections I had with these ambassadors. ||Currently I am part of the Providence College Pep Band and Jazz Ensemble. I am very dedicated to both groups, but I still have a lot of time in my week that I wish to fill by being an ambassador. ||Admission Ambassadors are responsible for giving information about Providence College as well as positively influencing high school students in a constructive way. An ambassador’s duty is to reflect the aura of Providence College in all of its virtues.||An ambassador must be personable, confident, and friendly. It is an ambassador’s job to make students feel welcomed and to show them what it is like to be a PC student. Confidence is imperative to be informational to a student’s unmet concerns.||The most difficult part would be having a student strongly dislike PC. This would be hard because I love this school. I would overcome this by just being positive. The most rewarding part would be seeing a student that I met with attend PC. ||I am a people person and I love meeting new people. I have a positive and optimistic viewpoint on life and I love being helpful and answering questions. My biggest weakness is that I get stressed out easily when I get overwhelmed with school. ||I found that the most helpful and informative way to pick a college was to visit! Once I was at PC, I knew that this is where I wanted to be. Every student should visit and talk to current students because it is the best way to understand any school. ||I love PC and I want to give back to it. I could truly reflect what PC is all about and how it is my “City Upon a Hill.” A Day in Friar Town was a great experience for me and I wish to have the chance to give that experience to many more students. |

I work with elders who have learning or other disabilities. We do activities like reading, writing, drawing, or math.||It would say the goal is to give students a realistic view of what it is like to attend Providence College and the various experiences that may be gained here. It also aims to provide ample information to students in parents to help with decision making.||They need to be friendly, outspoken, good leaders, and personable in order to welcome students in the best way possible and provide adequate information about the school. They need to be relatable and ready to answer any question.||The most difficult will be limiting the info to share since there is so much. To handle this I would do a lot of brainstorming and planning. The most rewarding would be giving back to the school and seeing how much the students enjoyed their visit!||I am very personable, reliable, friendly, and hardworking person who is able to get along with everyone. Sometimes I spent too much time trying to make things go as well as possible.||It was most helpful to attend the campus and experience it for myself. I would advise students to and make sure they "feel right" while on campus. I would also advise them to speak to current students to get a more realistic outlook on the school.||I want to be able to give back to Providence and become more involved.

|As Admission Ambassadors, our duty is to provide prospective students and families with interesting and useful information about Providence College. We want them to feel comfortable and certain PC is the right place for them.||An Ambassador needs to be dependable and assertive; they need to be energetic and enthusiastic about welcoming students to PC. They also need to be knowledgable and outgoing in order to help students receive the information they need about our school.||Answering questions about what I don't like about PC would be difficult. I would try my best to answer honestly as possible without selling our school short or giving it bad reputation. The most rewarding would be helping with the decision making process.||My strengths include good communicator, flexible, energetic, optimistic, and sincere. A weakness of mine is impatience: I like when things are done in a timely manner; but I understand some things take time, especially intrapersonal relations.||Talking to current students was most helpful. Hearing about their experiences gave me an insight into the school. I would take into consideration what students have to say to help the decision process because their experiences may be similar to yours.||The Ambassadors and students were the ones who influenced my decision to attend PC. I woud like to have the same affect on prospective students. I am friendly, outgoing, and inviting, which are important to help students understand more about PC.|

We facilitate events like Alumni Weekend, St. Dominick's Weekend. I also work in the Social Psychology Lab 9 hours a week. I run participants examining the relationship between friends. ||In addition to the Friars who give tours, the Admission Ambassadors go beyond the campus and give prospective students an inside scoop into PC as a whole, as well as facilitate one of the biggest decisions of their lives.||They should be outgoing and friendly, prospective students should feel welcome and comfortable. They also should be well-rounded. Having attended many different events will provide students with much information about different activities. ||Answering difficult questions that the parents might ask, I would answer truthfully. I believe the most rewarding would be to see a prospective student the following year, knowing that you had a prime role in their decision in coming to PC. ||I'm an extrovert, and very enthusiastic. I get very excited about the things I'm involved in. I'm determined, once I set my mind to something. A weakness is that I'm stubborn, I won't give up on something that isn't possible. ||Going to the campus and just feeling like I belonged there. I would say get as much information as possible about the academics AND student life, there needs to be a balance between those two, you want to have fun in college as well!||I want to share the charisma and excitement I have about PC to prospective students. I want to help them decide if PC is the place for them. I believe my excellent communication skills will help to portray PC in the best light.|

My friend/Faithworks coordinator Colleen Curry is also involved in the Program.||1. Portfolio writer (next year I will be an assistant editor) for The Cowl; 2. Faithworks 2012-2013 student participant and 2013-2014 leader; 3. volunteer at St. Mary's Home for Children (Campus Ministry)||Our mission is to foster a sense of community among students interested in giving back to Providence College and prospective students. We strive to welcome a new generation of Friars into their Friar family and promote PC and all it has to offer.||I think a good Ambassador should be friendly and outgoing because he or she is responsible for interacting positively with people. I think that an Ambassador should also be a good representative of PC by demonstrating enthusiasm and being well-rounded.||I expect the most difficult part might be answering the "tough" questions about alcohol, parties, etc., which I would learn to answer appropriately. I expect the most rewarding part of being an Ambassador would be sharing my incredible PC experience.||My strengths include a willingness to jump boldly into new situations, my good "people" skills, and a strong leadership capacity. My weaknesses include my perfectionistic and sometimes controlling tendencies.||The most helpful aspect of my college search process was the opportunity to spend the day at schools to which I was accepted. I would advise all high school seniors to spend a day on campus, attend a few classes, and get a sense of the school environment.||I want to be an Ambassador because I love Providence College and want to share my experience with prospective families. I also love meeting and interacting with people. I would be a good Ambassador because I am outgoing, enthusiastic, and articulate. |

My OL shared her experience, & how much she enjoyed meeting with prospective students & families to discuss PC & the opportunities offered.||Note Taker, PC Club Sailing Team Member, Habitat for Humanity Volunteer||To provide prospective students with insight into life as a PC student. Ambassadors can provide students with a 'bird's eye view' of what life will be like for them at PC, providing information that you won't find in informational brochures, etc.||Ambassadors must have good communication skills, as well as being positive, upbeat, and friendly, so that they can speak well of PC and be prepared to answer tough questions. ||Answering tough questions from students & parents will be difficult, so I must answer the question positively & re-direct questions I can't answer to someone that can. The most rewarding aspect will be sharing my experiences with students. ||My biggest weakness is not taking enough risks in life. Some of my strengths are great communication, people, and leadership skill, being punctual and always having a positive attitude. ||The most helpful tool was talking to current students & hearing about their experiences firsthand. I advise students to experience campus, talk to current students, & think about whether you can picture yourself living, studying, & making friends there. ||I was an Ambassador in high school & at Cornell, so I've had experience dealing with students, parents, & the difficult questions they ask. Also, as a transfer, I can provide a unique perspective on why I chose PC, & what I would've done differently.|

I would educate myself about different majors and activities order to be able to relate to the students. ||I am a very easy person to communicate with, and always try my best to be a good listener. I am interested in other people and enjoy learning about people and their lives. My weakness would be relating to people who have different interests than I do.. || By spending a "day in Friar Town" I was able to see exactly what a day at PC was like.

|An ambassador must share their personal experiences about PC to relieve any anxiety an incoming student or family has, as well as promote the uniqueness of the liberal arts education and the overall PC experience.||Leader, personable, relatable, understanding, out-going, friendly, respectable, trustworthy |
To be an ambassador the above qualities are necessary in order to show a professional and realistic image of the ideal and well-rrounded PC student.
|A difficulty is the incapability to relieve all the anxieties a student has. However, by sharing my experiences I can ease their anxieties and be rewarded by seeing students that do enroll at PC because of my testimonial. ||My strength is that I persevere throughout my college career and my life. I do not give up even when I am faced with challenges. My weakness is that I tend to be somewhat indecisive, but this allows me to make the most well-educated decisions. ||The tour, I knew that I could only go to a college for 4 years if I could envision myself there. I knew that I wanted to be part of the PC community as I learned more. I would tell incoming students to do the same, envision themselves as a PC student. ||I want to share my experiences. Choosing a college is an important and difficult decision. I would be a great resource to answer any questions a student has. I am passionate about the PC community and I know I would exude this passion as an ambassador.|
